1970 Buick GSX Engine Rebuild - RKM Performance Center
This 455cid V8 came into the shop under the hood of a 1970 Buick GSX. When new, the motor was capable of propelling the GSX to 13-second quarter mile passes in stock trim. Unfortunately, this one was way past its prime. To get this 455 back in shape, a full rebuld was called for. Technician Jon Sipple gives us a quick overview of the process.





Chevy, Olds, Pontiac and Buick V8 engines are not the same!
Evidently a segment of the automotive enthusiast population does not believe that the four main GM divisions had their own versions of a V8. In addition there may be people who simply never knew that fact. In this video I show photos of a 350 cid engine from Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Chevrolet and highlight the differences in each. Buick and Pontiac V8 engines went out of production in 1980, Oldsmobile's in 1990 and of course the Chevy versions lasted a lot longer because they were cheaper to produce and easier to smog/mpg certify. I challenge anyone to video themselves removing a Chevy SBC head and then installing it on a Pontiac, Olds or Buick engine.

Gauges are a Sun Super tach, and vintage Stewart Warner oil, temp, amp. This is a period exhibition car, so it will not conform to current NHRA spec. The car is being built to the 1965 NHRA rule book. It has the maximum crank center height of 25", and near the maximum amount of engine set back as well. Maximum setback was determined by the wheelbase. You are allowed 10% of the wheelbase measured from the axle centerline to the first sparkplug hole.

1972 Buick Skylark
1972 Buick Skylark with a Hi-Compression Buick 350-4 I've had this car since October 8th 2010, I'm a senior in High School and it is my first car, my dad payed for half of it and I payed for the other half. I pay for the performance goodies that go into it and the occasional parts that break too. I love driving this old monster even though premium gas prices are outrageous but the rumble and roar of that massive V8 are well worth it. I take pride in this car and my dad and I do most of the work on it ourselves, it's somewhat of a father-son project. We've done nothing but make this car a heck of a lot better than it was when we got it. In the great words of GS Club of America, going fast with class, that's what these Buicks do. Detials: Stock HP: 175hp (for 1972 Buick 350-4 8.5:1 compression) Rear-wheel HP: 226hp @ 4326 RPM (should be a little higher with the Hyfire and Mallory coil) Rear-wheel Tourqe: 307.8 lb-ft @ 3372 RPM (should also be a little higher) Net HP: approx. 260hp Compression: 9.5:1 (not sure, but definitely higher than stock because without prem fuel I get spark knock with the correct fuel to air mixture) Rear-end gears: 2.73:1 Open Differential (plan on getting a Limited Slip one) Transmission: turbohydramatic 350 (with a shift kit for fun :D)

1972 Buick Riviera STK 87-ATL.mpg
Do you like Buick muscle cars? How about a 1972 Buick Riviera GS Stage 1 boat tail that's both show and go! Not only can you take this bad boy to the local cruise or car show, but it's ready to burst down the quarter mile in 11.5 seconds @ 119mph. A great 7.50 1/8th mile car, pro bracket racer, or even the ultimate sleeper for those late night street battles. With a numbers matching original 455 Stage 1 block, which is the only original piece under the hood. It's now sitting at 494ci pushing out 670hp ad a whopping 707ft lbs of blacktop wrinkling torque! This ultimate beast is the definition of being unique and one of a kind. Stage 1 455 numbers matching block, but that's about it due to this beast of beasts being totally re-done in just about every way imaginable by the southeast's premier engine builder, Al Moody. Bored and stroked to 494CI and attached to a professionally built freewheeling Cohn transmission with everything meticulously gone thru and freshened up. The engine has about 50 passes on it before it was just freshened up and by the way; it's NEVER had any Nitrous. Many TA parts including aluminum Stage 2 ported heads, polished TA intake, with a Quick Fuel 1050 carb with annular Boosters resting on top. Engine block reinforced with a TA block girdle and it was short filled for extra strength. TA solid lifter 284/294 cam, TA roller rockers and a TA stroker crank. Meziere electric high flow water pump, a belt driven vacuum pump, aluminum radiator and a complete MSD 6A set up. TCI 11" Street Dominator 2500 convertor, B&M Pro Stick shifter with a reversed pattern manual valve body. Long large tube headers that mount up to a very beautiful sounding and efficient 3" x-pipe Exhaust system, with cut-outs, that flow thru single chamber Flowmaster mufflers. Large trunk mounted fuel cell with all the best plumbing and a trunk mounted electric fuel pump. The red top battery has also been re-located to the trunk and sits in an NHRA approved battery box and cut-off. Custom Ram-Air designed by Air Inlet Systems out of Hamilton Ontario Canada with 4" box and tubes that breathe thru the center headlamp holes. Ford 9" rear end, 4.11 gears with locker, Moser axles, reinforced nodular case and all HD parts including large studs that was built to be indestructible. 90/10 QA-1 shocks up front and back and the sway bar has been removed. This beast weighs in at an unbelievable 4800lbs with no lightening to the vehicle at all other than the removal of the A/C system. With all that weight, one would think that lifting the front wheels off the ground at launch would be impossible but yet this one does and what an unbelievable site it is to see! Professionally restored by owner of more than 14 years, the two tone charcoal gray metallic and black PPG urethane paint was sanded and buffed to absolute perfection to show off the laser straight body that has never had a spot of rust its entire life. The under-carriage is just as nice and well taken care of as the body and interior of this vehicle. Sporting the exceptional original black leather interior that's still in nearly perfect condition. The front seats are out of a '70 GS stage 1 and the carpet was custom done with matching floor mats with the Buick logo stitched in. New leather wrapped aluminum Grant steering wheel also sports the Buick logo horn cap. Autometer Sport Comp tach with record and playback along with added oil temp and pressure, volt and water temp gauges. A 6pt. roll bar along with Simpson 5pt racing harness keeps you safe and secure. All chrome and stainless on the car is near perfection as well. Sitting on 15" polished Torq-Thrust wheels wrapped in Goodyears with Goodyear Drag Radials out back. This car is being sold with an extra set of Goodyear slicks and Hoosier Radials, both already mounted on matching Torq-Thrust wheels. Come test drive this awesome car and you'll want to go straight to the track to open her up and see just what this beast can do! Don't hesitate on this one-of-a-kind car that will surely win some more show and go trophies. This vehicle is located in our Atlanta, GA showroom.

1965 Buick Skylark Gran Sport hardtop
Beautiful car, with a Wildcat engine...401 c.i. behemoth. Is it any wonder these cars could GO! Buick was certainly not going to be ignored within General Motors..and could be very competitive with Chevelle, GTO and Cutlass ! The ingredients were the same...big engine, relatively small, lightweight car.
